Machine Head guitar tabs for Sail into the black

Guitar tabs with lyrics

Band:   Machine Head
Album:  Bloodstone And Diamonds (2014)

Tuning: Drop A chord diagramBB (B, F#, B, E, G#, A chord diagramC#C#)

Machine Head don't play in Drop A chord diagramBB precisely... They are tuned to
Drop A chord diagramBB but then tuned up 40 cents sharper... So even though not possible
it's kind of like they're playing in Drop A chord diagramB#B# (Between Drop A chord diagramBB and A chord diagramC majorC)
On a Korg tuner it would look something like this

Tuner:
50                           x  50#
|--|--|--|--|-[-B-]-|--|--|--|--|

The 'x' indicates where your tuning should be

Also comment, correct, and please, please rate!!!
